LAWRENCE HAMMOND - 'PRESUMED LOST' DOUBLE VINYL LP (ENT 015 12”)
Coming 8 May 2013, a double album of Lawrence Hammond’s ‘Presumed Lost’.
Folks, we’ve finally bitten the bullet and done a vinyl run of the ‘Presumed Lost’
This is a very limited release of just 300 copies coming in a beautiful gatefold sleeve.
Pressed on 180gsm vinyl
, the album features lyrics to all 11 songs on the album reprinted on the inner gatefold sleeve plus a new liner note by Lawrence himself and a recently unearthed, never-before published beautiful colour photo of the singer from the mid-70s.
However if you want to know the full story behind ‘Presumed Lost’
, you’ll still have to buy the CD version
as we won’t be re-printing the CD booklet as part of this release.
Please note also that there are NO additional tracks.
This is a must-have item ! Once they’ve gone, they’re gone as we won’t be doing a re-press.
Shindig ! Magazine Review
Following 2011's magnificent packaging of Mad River
's Jersey Sloo
, Nigel Cross' Shagrat Records pull off another coup in this most revered of 60s' bands' tale by restoring singer Lawrence Hammond's follow up to Coyote's Dream
, his 1976 release on John Fahey's Tacoma label.
Finished in 1981 but never released, it again shows Hammond as a uniquely haunting voice, ringing loud and clear on a sublime selection of cowboy ballads ('Pale Moon on the Pecos
'), humourous outings ('The Heavenly Saga of Flight 641
') and his 'John Deere Tractor
' (later covered by The Judds
), while 'Tumbleweed Plantation
' recalls his old band's 'Paradise Bar And Grill
These, plus heart-circling 'Papa Redwing Blackbird
' and epic 'West Texas Border Patrol
' are boosted by stellar musicians, including fiddler Byron Berline
and pedal steel maestro Bill Weingarden
Stetsons off to Shagrat for allowing this previously lost space cowboy masterpiece to finally ride out of the traps as a classic of its era. Kris Needs
